Heavenly Father, please help us to learn that you are strong even though we are weak. May times of sickness make us acutely aware of your sufficient grace, that you alone are able to save. Keep us rejoicing in the glorious position in which you have placed us with Christ, that even though we are feeble and helpless in our sin, you have raised us up and placed us in your mighty presence; though we are blighted with sin, you have washed us clean. Keep us rejoicing in Christ, the only one who can and has brought this about for us. Keep us clinging to him always.
